There was supposed to be only enough for 5000 people. Maybe they meant 5000 codes. Some people got more than one.

They sent me three. :bouncy:
DR:OTR is $19 so if anyone got a code you can get a great game free.

Three days after I emailed them. They also sent me an updated code so that's how I received two of them.

I got a new code that worked, but when I went to order a 1600 point card their system canceled my order, now I don't know where my $20 is.

Just gave them a call and they told me it will take 72 hours for them to resolve this issue.

Holy crud, the MS Cloud evaluation is 6GB+! Does anybody know if they're still handing out codes? I'm downloading now, but wow!

Do you have to do all the labs, or just one? How long did it take?

I didn't even see DC2 initially. Oh well, it's $10 after coupon.

System Center 2012 is requiring a 64-bit OS to launch, and I don't have an extra server sitting around here.

Any way to get around registering the software w/o installing it?

You can also get a 20 dollars off coupon if you want to go through the hassle. This link will explain- http://www.microsoft...ekkewi4fkve4zzk



Can someone explain the steps to getting this discount? I clicked the link and step 1 says to enter promo code "CLOUD" somewhere, but I didn't see anywhere to enter a promo code. I downloaded the software and did an evaluation but still nowhere to enter a promo code. Does this mean I won't be getting my $20 promo code for the Microsoft store? Who do you contact with these questions about the Microsoft store promo code?

Just click #1 download the cloud or don't. I dled it and then cancelled and then do the virtual lab tour and wait 3-8 days for a $20 code you should get an e-mail welcoming you to cloud.

It popped up the remote desktop connection, I closed it and then the background window swapped to a final evaluation form. Submitted. Just have to be patient now. ;)

For the record, that was actually quite a bit of work.

Yeah it was, lol. They sent me two codes. One went towards MS points which where free (should've used it on DC2 since it would've been $9.99), and the other went towards MW3 (PC) was roughly $18. Not a bad price for that game. It's quite fun as well.

^its kinda odd they charge you more to digitally download 1600 MS points but shipping on it is free which in the end probably cost more

I know that's right. I'm glad I saw that they would send me the email with the code. You could probably use it on MP3 to make it $39.99. I have a feeling that one will hit $45-$40 in probably three weeks or so. It didn't sell so well.

MP3 = Max Payne 3, lol. I was thinking out loud. The $20 coupon can be used on anything, and I'm positive I saw the PC copy of Max Payne 3 on the site.

Wondering if Forza 4 will be like Gran Turismo 5, which never seems to have dropped below $30. Of course, Forza 4 is only about 6 months out from release (unlike GT5, which is a year older), so probably too early to judge.

Got my $20 code just a few minutes ago, ran through and grabbed Halo Anniversary for FREE. No tax, no shipping, didn't even need a credit card.

Their site is getting hit HARD. Took a long while to make it through checkout.

Damn, just bought Halo: CEA used at Gamefly for like 16 the other day. Would easily spend the extra $5 for a new copy given the condition of the one GF sent me.

take your copy and trade it to best buy. best buy will give you $20 after the bonus trade in ($21 if you are GC unlocked member). it's not cash but you will spend the credit there at some point anyway. you can also sell the map pack code you get from MS since best buy doesn't require it during trade-in.
